The Gannochy beats offer over 20 named pools and a wide variety of fishing on five miles of widely varying river from the surging depths of the gorges to the serene calm of Dalforth.                                                                                                                                      
Fish can be caught from February onwards, but the prime season starts in May.  Salmon over 30 lbs are sometimes seen, though it is rare to land one over 20 lbs.  There is a fine run of grilse from July.  The river also has sea-trout and brown trout up to 5lb.
